Antje Duvekot is one of the brightest stars on the American folk music scene. Her vocals are distinct, exquisite, and rich – simultaneously and immediately disarming and embracing. Her deftly-created lyrics shed an honest, unflinching light into the darkest corners of her life and our times. Her atmospheric arrangements enhance a lyrical tension that blurs the line between hopefulness and helpless illusion. Her performances are brilliant, honest, and superbly executed.
The Boston Globe proclaimed, “Antje Duvekot’s provocative, dark-eyed ballads are becoming the talk of the folk world.” Antje has won some of the top songwriting awards including the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the prestigious, Kerrville’s “Best New Folk Award” and in one of the nation’s top music markets, she won the Boston Music Award for “Outstanding Folk Act”, three of the top prizes in the singer songwriter world.
Antje has extensive touring experience, criss-crossing the US and Europe many times. She is a compelling live performer and has been invited to play some of the top festivals including The Newport Folk Festival as well as the Mountain Stage, Philadelphia and Kerrville Festivals. Internationally, she’s headlined the The Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland and the Tonder Festival in Denmark. In December of 2007, The Bank of America featured Antje’s song Merry Go Round in a national TV advertising campaign seen by millions, including a Super Bowl audience.
The Stayaway Team is thrilled to bring Antje Duvekot to the Folk Project. She’s putting on a show to remember. And you’ll want to be there.
